Death Row Inmate: Ralph Baze
For the next few weeks, we'll be spotlighting residents of Kentucky's Death Row. You can view the full list anytime by clicking "Killers on Death Row" in the side bar. The first on our list:
Baze
Ralph Baze
This killer resided in Powell County, Kentucky. He had been convicted twice of felonies and was wanted in Ohio for Assault of a Police Officer, Bail Jumping, Receiving Stolen Property, and Flagrant Nonsupport. On January 15, 1992, the Lucas County Sheriff's Office in Toledo, Ohio, notified the Powell County authorities that they wished to extradite Baze on the felony counts. When Deputy Sheriff Arthur Briscoe arrived at Baze's cabin to arrest him, Baze escaped through a trapdoor, retrieved his SKS assault rifle from behind the cabin, and fled into the woods.
...
Later, Baze testified that Deputy Briscoe had shot him first, striking him in the leg.
...
Sheriff Bennett opened the back door of the police cruiser, crossing directly into Baze's line of fire.
...
Baze was too close to give him time to reload. Deputy Briscoe attempted to escape, but he was shot in the back by Baze, who then approached the injured officer and shot him in the head at point-blank range. Baze then fled on foot to adjoining Estill County where he surrendered without incident that evening. Ralph Baze was tried in Rowan County, convicted, and sentenced to death February 4, 1994 for shooting the officers. Baze was previously scheduled to be executed in 2007.

Death row inmate Ralph Baze is asking Kentucky's governor for clemency.Baze's execution is scheduled for September 25th.Action News 36 was the only station at the capitol Friday morning when Baze's legal team made the request for clemency.In Kentucky, only the governor has the power to grant an inmate clemency, which is the fancy term for lessening a prison sentence.Friday morning, two and a half weeks before he's set to die by lethal injection, Baze asked to be moved off death row.Governor Ernie Fletcher was not in his office when Baze's legal team dropped off the clemency request.
...
Baze has been on death row since he was convicted of double murder in December 1993.He shot Powell County Sheriff Steve Bennett and Deputy Arthur Briscoe January 30th 1992. According to investigators and the prosecutor, Baze "ambushed' the officers as they attempted to serve felony warrants on him.
...
Baze's legal team gave the governor information they claim was "kept from the jury."
...
At his trial, Baze claimed he did not shoot first.
...
Because Baze is set to be put to death with this lethal cocktail of drugs 18 days from now, clemency is one of his last chances to avoid execution.Baze has asked the Kentucky Supreme Court to stay his execution.No date has been set for a hearing on that motion.Since 1976, only one inmate on Kentucky's death row has ever been granted clemency.

Executions around the country were put on hold after the nation's highest court agreed to hear the case of Ralph Baze and Thomas Clyde Bowling.
...
News of today's ruling traveled quickly around Kentucky and was a main topic of conversation in Powell County, where Ralph Baze shot and killed a sheriff and deputy who were trying to arrest him.
The Governor of Virginia lifted his state's moratorium on executions two hours after the Supreme Court issued its ruling.
